Curly strands grow slower than straight ones.

TRUTH The speed at which your hair grows is ge­netic. On av­er­age, hair grows 1.25cm a month. That’s 15cm a year. If you have waves, kinks or coils in your hair, you may not feel like you’re mak­ing much progress at all. Curly hair can shrink up to 30% its nat­u­ral length, while coily hair shrinks up to 75% of its true length. Curly hair is also sus­cep­ti­ble to dry­ness and dam­age. Treat your curls with mois­tur­is­ing masks and reg­u­lar trims.
